Art and History – a 1940’s Retreat

ACCOMMODATION – see also, Slide Show at bottom of page

RAF Ripperston offers a unique 1940’s experience with all the comforts of the modern day. Art & History is combined throughout the buildings, with individually designed bedrooms formed from the Officer’s, NCO’s, Airman’s & WAAF’s Rooms within the former Admin & Accommodation Wing.

A full Welsh breakfast is served every morning and our special Three Course Dinner is an option which has proved a great success, offering home cooked local produce and vegetables from our own organic kitchen gardens.

RAF Ripperston is truly captivating; a step back in time located just one mile from St Brides Beach and the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path, for which St Brides Church and the historical home of Lord Kensington, St Brides Castle, provide the backdrop.

Our most recent visitor, from the USA, whose father was stationed here in 1942 and whose historic recollections we now have to share, said that RAF Ripperston along with the hospitality she had received had exceeded all her expectations and she is hoping to visit again next year.
